ATVs are used both for recreation as well as for use in certain occupations where transportation is needed in off-road locations.
Most ATVs accidents occur because of unlawful activity. This includes operation on paved roads; operation by a driver too young for the size of the vehicle; sharing the vehicle with a passenger; riding without protective apparel; riding under the influence of alcohol or drugs; and driving without having undergone the required training.
